Download PDF for this date

The Federation of Jewish Philanthropies here today announced that next week will be dedicated by its women’s division as a week of special activities in tribute to Mrs Felix M. Warburg, honoring her for almost four decades of effort in behalf of underprivileged peoples at home and abroad. A tribute committee, made up of more than 150 leaders from all walks of life, has been formed.

A statement issued by the Federation said: “Mrs. Warburg, by her life and activity, has set an example to the whole community of the meaning of love of one’s neighbor. Her concern for the welfare of the people of New York City and for the peoples of the world is real, sincere and warm. Her humanitarian activities are an inspiration to every one; her warm personality has gained her the devotion, admiration and affection of all humanity. It is in recognition of these qualities that we pause to pay this tribute to Mrs. Warburg, and in so doing, pay honor to ourselves.”
